Barrister's Ball Friday Fancies

It is the weekend!
Barrister's Ball {BB} is tonight.  It is the equivalent of formal for a sorority/fraternity.  But, it is has the laid back feel of semi-formal.

This is my Friday Fancies for BB...

Link up with {av} to let us know what you are fancying this Friday.

This is my actual dress or at least something very similar to it.  It is by Alexia Admor, but mine has white pearls along the top.

I am on the Social Committee, so I was involved in planning some of BB.  It is being held at the Francis Marion Hotel in downtown Charleston.  We are having shrimp n' grits, a sushi bar, and other delicious food.  A photo booth will be sent up for what I am sure will be some classic photo ops.

I was in charge of booking the band.  I volunteered for this job, because I knew just the girl to contact.  I went straight to Megan (Fried Green Pickles), who is somewhat of a pro in the Charleston wedding/event industry.  She helped me snag one of the best "party" bands, Soul Fish, in the area.  They are going to be a lot of fun.  My date is a good guy friend, Anthony, and he loves to dance.

Don't ask about the sombreros!
We most certainly will end our night at Trio Club.  I have by boogie shoes ready for a little...Don't Stop Believin', Sweet Caroline, Take Me Home Tonight, and Shout!

What is your favorite "weddingesque" song?
